Acupuncture (dry needling)

(By Duncan Scobie DO)

I use acupuncture techniques for pain relief. The methods I use are based on western orthodox principles rather than Chinese or Japanese methods. Often the points of application are similar but the rationale is different. It has been shown that using acupuncture needles can stimulate the production of anti inflamatories and endorphins (natural pain killers); it has also been shown to cause tight and painful muscles to relax.
I only use acupuncture for these reasons and not for the full range of conditions that a traditional acupuncturist would treat. If you are unsure if I can help I am happy to advise and if it is not appropriate for me to treat I will try and recommend to someone who can.
